          Yes, it does its Rainey season now in CR. It usually rains in the mid afternoon and at night. Was still able to get some some sun in this lovely country. We were there for 8 days and 2 days it didn't rain at all.

          Hi, we will be staying here for our honeymoon. I know it says gratuities are included but my wife and I like to tip extra for good service. Does the staff prefer to be tipped in USD or Colones?
